Greetings Pentax Enthusiasts

I have been a Pentax owner since 1978 as a photo enthusiast. However, when the early digital cameras came out I went to the point and shot cameras for a while until I decided to go with a DSLR. Since I had a number of K lenses I decided to stay with the Pentax. I purchased the K50 to get back into the SLR functionality until the K3-II came out. I now use both cameras but most often the K3-II.

Hi from Australia Harold. Welcome to the Pentax forums. The backwards compatibility of Pentax lenses and bodies is a great feature of our chosen brand. Glad you kept your " old " stuff so you could put it on your " new " stuff !! Good to have you aboard.

Welcome to the forum,

Your name reminds me of that old poem that ends with

"There sat harold with his eye full of arrow
On his horse with his mace in his hand."

Archaeologists claim King Harold survived Battle of Hastings | Daily Mail Online

I can find reference to King Herald, but not to the poem.

I guess you're probably not disappointed...

OK< I'll shut up now.
